The lobby of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Brickell Key has an air of prestige that is breathtaking. Known for housing Miami’s most famous and influential tourists, our anticipation with the knowledge of who we were about to meet was palpable. It seemed almost strange that within the walls of such a pristine and peaceful haven was Paul Van Dyk – known for house music that would blow the roof off the very structure we were in. In Miami to give the closing performance for WMC 2011 at Mansion nightclub, PVD walked into the lobby with an ethereal demeanor that has undoubtedly evolved over the past two decades. Known as one of the founders of electronic music, Paul Van Dyk is a music legend, an international icon, and a beacon of creativity and innovation in the music industry.
